Answered Prayer

We've all had more answered prayers than we can count, though some were not answered the way in which we wanted.

For several months I've been praying for an unsaved friend to receive salvation, get a new job so he can quit his current job and for a family member to answer a request he made to her years ago.

He received the an envelope in the mail just after Christmas, it contained not only the small thing he requested, it also contained some family pictures. He received a new job and turned in his 2 week notice last week.

He has no idea I've been praying for him, so he had no idea he was sharing praise reports with me. I look forward to the day (tears are welling up in my eyes as I think about it) I receive the praise report of all praise reports - he will call and tell me he's accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

In this instant society, sometimes it feels as if our prayers are hitting a brick wall when we wait for weeks, months, and years for an answer. Sisters keep praying!

You are SO sweet to pray for him and how cool that he shared his praise reports with you! I'll pray for him now!

Love that you're looking forward to the day you'll receive that ultimate praise report. I blogged at the first of the week about never giving up in our prayers. So important, isn't it?
